I'm feeling quite accomplished this month. I have this lap quilt all put together, and I really like the way it has turned out!
I am making this as part of Scrap-A-Palooza hosted by Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
I just pulled a bunch of colorful fabrics from my stash, made five-inch blocks of varying widths, and stitched them all together. The sashing is a batik, though, and I am nearly afraid it will bleed because I was in such a hurry to get it done, I didn't prewash it. Didn't even think to pre-wash it. I know better than that.
I think I will just get it quilted, bound, and then wash it with that Synthropol and hope for the best. I'd really like this one for a cozy quilt to watch tv, read a book, or check up on my bloggy friends!
It was a really fast, quick, easy project. January is my month to get caught up on my own personal projects. February I'll be out of town for a couple of weeks, and by April, I get swamped with my Day Job activities. So January is my time!
What are you working on this fine January weekend?
